The adjective ‘slippery’ isn’t often used in a positive context, but when it comes to sexual intercourse, the old adage “the wetter the better” rings true.

In a noble attempt to make safe sex more enjoyable, a team of researchers in the UK has successfully invented a self-lubricating condom that provides a slippery sensation when used.

The researchers say their unique coating shows potential when it comes to cutting friction pain and boosting satisfaction.

While latex condoms have numerous advantages – such as excellent barrier properties, low cost and easy use – they also have high surface friction. This can lead to all sorts of issues during sex, including condom breakage and discomfort.

A lack of pleasure is a commonly cited “turn-off” among both men and women when it comes to condoms.
